Eggplant Fries



This weekend, I watched almost every episode ever made of My So Called Life (I mean, there were only 18 episodes ever made, but still). 




I also made eggplant fries, doused in honey and showered with sea salt. Crispy, sticky, sweet, salty eggplant fries.

Baked Eggplant Fries with Honey and Sea Salt
Inspired by Poppy, adapted from this recipe

1 eggplant, sliced into ½ inch fries 
1/2 cup rice flour
Pinch of garlic powder, cumin, ginger, salt
olive oil
honey
sea salt (like flakey maldon)
black sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 500. Soak eggplant in ice water for 10 minutes, drain, drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Mix together flour and spices. Dredge eggplant in flour, and shake off excess. Bake for 10ish minutes, until crispy and golden brown around the edges. While still hot, drizzle (heavily) with honey, I mean really get in there with the honey, and sprinkle with a good shower of sea salt and a pinch of sesame seeds.
